GPS question

My gps and my speedometer show different speeds, any idea which one is right? I have stock tires and wheels and a garmin nuvi 255. The gps shows 3 mph faster than my truck speedo. Its kinda annoying... Any ideas?

the gps is correct. the speedos on the tacomas are close, but not totally accurate by any means.

My gps shows 3 mph slower than speedo. The scangauge also displays 3mph slower. And my tires are slightly larger than stock.

On another note, the scan gauge displays the RPMs 400 lower than the tach.
